about | the television series

Invisibility cloaks. Spider silk that is stronger than steel. Plastics made of sugar that dissolve in landfills. Self-healing military vehicles. Smart pills and micro-robots that zap diseases. Clothes that monitor your mood. What will the future bring, and what will it be made of?

In Nova’s television series:

  • Making Stuff  — stronger, smaller, cleaner, smarter
  • Making More Stuff — faster, wilder, colder, safer

Popular New York Times tech reporter David Pogue takes you on a tour of our material world. Get a behind-the-scenes look at innovation — a new generation of materials better than we’ve ever seen.

From the Stone Age, Bronze Age, and Iron Age — to recent times dominated by plastics + silicon — materials have defined the progression of humanity. We’re in a materials revolution.

Researchers around the globe push the boundaries further than ever before — using biology + chemistry to imbue materials with new qualities. Materials will take civilization into the future. Join David Pogue — your tech-savvy guide — for a fascinating show about breakthroughs shaping tomorrow.

This series was produced in co-operation with the Materials Research Society — an organization of 16,000 materials researchers from schools, industry, and government. And a recognized leader in promoting materials science research.
